A man and woman were found dead inside an Ahwatukee home Monday, and their deaths appear to be a murder-suicide.
Police were called to the home near Chandler Boulevard and 32nd Street about 1 p.m. Monday. There, they found 61-year-old Stanley E. Mahowald and his wife, 61-year-old Barbara J. Mahowald.
Authorities say both victims were found with gunshot wounds.
According to Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos, there were no signs of forced entry to the home. All doors were closed and locked.
Police say nobody else was found in the home and a call came from a relative of the victims who lived nearby. Investigators believe Stanley Mahowald fatally shot his wife and then himself.
